** Happiness, Sexual Perversion, & the Declaration of Independence --  A Sewer of Behavior --  Test your ability to deal with hard-core issues, in this case sexuality.   How would you respond to Mr. Frank Kameny?  Most people will not engage the issues.  And most who do  are incapable of putting forth a compelling response. 
        We had better get prepared, because we are headed for a sewer of behavior all across America.  And hardly a single public figure can stand up with truth and grace.   How about you?  We have only ourselves to blame if we let our own prudery, cowardice, and deliberate ignorance hold open the doors for this disaster. 
        Kameny is dead wrong about the Declaration of Independence supporting his cause.  Could you say why?   Commentary by E Fox.
